Paper A: Application of a decision making framework to an IT-related ethical issue.

 

For this assignment, you are given an opportunity to explore and apply a decision making framework to

 

an IT-related ethical issue.

 

A framework provides a methodical and systematic approach for

 

decision making

 

.

 

UMUC

 

Module 2 - Methods of Ethical Analysis (see LEO Content – Readings for

 

week 2)

 

describes three structured frameworks that may be used for ethical analysis, namely

 

Reynolds

 

Seven-Step Approach, Kidder’s Nine Steps, and Spinello’s Seven-Step Process

 

.

 

There are several

 

ways described in UMUC Module 2 to systematically approach an ethical dilemma

 

, and while each

 

of the frameworks described has its merits, each will result in an ethical decision if straightforwardly and

 

honestly applied.

 

In addition, you will want to consider the ethical theories described in

 

Module 1 – Introduction to

 

Theoretical Ethical Frameworks (see LEO Content – Readings for week 1)

 

which help decision

 

makers find the right balance concerning the acceptability of and justification for their actions. A separate

 

write-up of the ethical theory that supports your decision is part of the following requirements.

 

For this paper, the following elements must be addressed:

 

ï‚·

 

Describe a current IT-related ethical issue

 

:

 

Since this is a paper exercise, not a real-time

 

situation,

 

you may want to construct a brief scenario

 

where this issue comes into play, and thus

 

causes an ethical dilemma. The dilemma may affect you, your family, your job, or your company; or it

 

may be a matter of public policy or law that affects the general populace.

 

See the list below for a list of

 

suggested issues, which may be a source of ethical dilemmas

 

.

 

ï‚·

 

Define a concise problem statement

 

that is

 

extracted

 

from the above description or scenario. It

 

is best

 

if you define a specific problem caused by the dilemma, that needs a specific ethical

 

decision to be made, that will solve the dilemma

 

. Be aware that if it is a matter of public policy or law,

 

that it may require a regulatory body or congressional approval to take action to implement a solution.

 

ï‚·

 

Analyze your problem

 

using one of the structured decision-making frameworks chosen from

 

Module 2.

 

Make sure that you identify the decision-making framework utilized. In addition, the

 

steps in the decision-making framework selected must be used as major headings in the Analysis

 

section.

 

ï‚·

 

Consider and state the impact of the decision that you made

 

on an individual, an

 

organization, stakeholders, customers suppliers, and the environment, as applicable!

 

ï‚·

 

State and discuss the applicable ethical theory

 

from Module 1

 

that supports your decision.

 

Concerning your paper:

 

ï‚·

 

Prepare a minimum 3- 5 page, double-spaced paper and submit it to the LEO Assignments

 

Module as an attached Microsoft Word file.

 

ï‚·

 

Provide appropriate American Psychological Association (APA) source citations for all

 

sources you use

 

. In addition to critical thinking and analysis skills, your paper should reflect appropriate

 

grammar and spelling, good organization, and proper business-writing style.

 

For example, Kidder’s approach has nine steps, which are:

 

ï‚·

 

Recognize that there is a moral issue.

 

ï‚·

 

Determine the actor (whose moral issue is it?).

 

ï‚·

 

Gather the relevant facts.

 

ï‚·

 

Test for right-versus-wrong issues.

 

ï‚·

 

Test for right-versus-right paradigms (what sort of dilemma is this?).

 

ï‚·

 

Apply the resolution principles (ends-based, rule-based, or care-based).

 

ï‚·

 

Investigate the "trilemma" options (look for common ground or compromise).

 

ï‚·

 

Make the decision.

 

ï‚·

 

Revisit and reflect on the decision. (Kidder, 1995, p. 183-187)

 

Reminder:

 

Each of the steps for whatever framework that you select must be a major heading

 

in

 

the Analysis section of your paper.

 

Here are some suggested issues for you to consider, the additional text is designed to help you

 

flesh out the issue:
